Notes and Editorial Reviews

The debut album by two of the most critically acclaimed young Russian musicians working today. 'This is one of those delightful surprises that one can instantly love. It also underscores yet again the fact that fame is no prerequisite for (or guarantee of) top-notch performances. Andrianov and Urasin are as one in these sonatas, playing with immense skill, delicacy of touch and, especially in the Rachmaninov, plenty of heart.'
